wo ntonly. but reverently, discreetly, soberly and in the fear of god, duly considering the causes for which matrimony was ordained. first, it was ordained for the increase of mankind according to the will of god, and that children might be brought up in the fear and nurture of the lord and to the praise of his holy name. secondly, it was ordained in order that the natural instincts and affections implanted by god, should be hallowed and directed aright, that those who are called of god to this holy estate, should continue therein in pureness of living. thirdly, it was ordained for the mutual society, help and comfort, that the one ought to
have of the other, both in prosperity and adversity. into which holy estate these two persons present come now to be joined. therefore, if any man can show any just cause why they may not lawfully be joined together, let him now speak or else hereafter, forever hold his peace. >> that was reverend dr. john hall, the dean of westminster. now we have the archbishop of canterbury. >> that if either of you know any impediment why you may not be lawfully joined together in matrimony, you do now confess it. so many as our couple together in god's word love, are not
joined together by god, neither is their matrimony lawful. william arthur philip louis, wilt thou have this woman to thy wedded wife, to live together according to god's law in the holy estate of matrimony? wilt thou love her, comfort her, keep her in sickness and in health and forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her so long as ye both shall live? >> i will. >> catherine elizabeth, wilt thou have this man to thy wedded husband, to live together according to god's law in the holy estate of matrimony, wilt thou love him comfort him, love him, honor him and keep him, in sickness and health, and forsaking all other, keep thee only unto him so long as ye both shall live? >> i will. >> who giveth this woman to be married to this man?

acceptable, and perfect. let love be genuine. hate what is evil. hold fast to what is good. love one another with mutual affection. outdo one another in showing honor. do not lag in zeal. be ardent in spirit. serve the lord. rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering persevere in prayer. contribute to the needs of the saints, extend hospitality to strangers. bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse them.

bishop of london. >> be who god meant you to be. and you will set the world on fire. so said saint catherine of siena whose festival day it is today. marriage is intended to be a way in which man and woman help each other to become what god meant each one to be. their deepest and their truest selves. many people are fearful at the prospect for our world, but the message of the celebrations in this country and far beyond its shores, is the right one.
this is a joyful day. it is good that people in every continent are able to share in these celebrations. because this is, as every wedding day should be, a day of hope. in a sense, every wedding is a royal wedding, with the bride and the groom as king and queen of creation, making a new life together, so that life can flow through them into the future. you have both made your decision today. i will. and by making this new relationship, you've aligned yourselves with what we believe is the way in which life is spiritually evolving, and which will lead to a creative future for the human race. i pray that all of us present and the many millions watching
this ceremony and sharing in your joy today, will do everything in our power to support and uphold you in your new life, and i pray that god will bless you in the way of life that you have chosen. that way which is expressed in the prayer that you have composed together in preparation for this day. god, our father, we thank you for our families, for the love that we share, and for the joy of our marriage. in the business of each day, keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life, and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy.
strengthened by our union, help us to serve and comfort those who suffer. we ask this in the spirit of jesus christ, and we all say amen. >> all: amen. inspiring words there from the bishop of london. other inspiring words, prince william apparently said to his bride as she arrived at the altar, "you look beautiful.". we're going to hear the motet, an interesting story. a young man called paul mealor who wrote this and the special couple heard it up at st. andrews and said we want this at our wedding. he's a completely unknown composer until now. this will change his life forever. ♪

>> it's been an incredible day, i think. >> the roar of the crowd. >> what a service, perfectly pitched. kate middleton, all the pressure, hasn't put a foot wrong, even got william's name right, unlike diana. >> it's true. >> i'm impressed by her. she's held herself together. >> she has such poise. >> remarkable decorum. [ cheers and applause ] >> this is -- you can sum up the whole day, the monarchy is back, the british monarchy. the battered british monarchy on the ropes the last, 10, 15 years, suddenly seeing with this occasion, widespread jubilation
not just here, but we have been seeing scenes all over the world -- people watching this. world, people watching this, 2 billion people joining in the celebration. quite amazing. after diana died, a lot of people in britain felt like the bright light of the royal family had gone, that we had lost our superstar, if you like, in diana. as i watch these scenes, there's no doubt we have got a new superstar in kate middleton. this is her life, never going to be the same. this is a day that is going to propel her into the stratosphere of celebrity status and media attention. what i like is the way she has held herself together, the way she's kept her poise. this really, i think, augers well for her potential as the
future queen. you have to be able to handle this stuff. and the sun has come out. i cannot tell you how rare this is. to be in april, to have a whole week of sunshine. so the gods have blessed on this too, which is an amazing thing. it's amazing. there are lots of wonderful occasions around the world, but there is nothing quite like this. when you watch the household cavalry escorting this carriage up to buckingham palace, where you see the guards all waiting, the guards, you troupe the color, looking utterly magnificent in front of millions of people. and this is just about as big as any occasion can get. i mean, that just gives you goosebumps.
i actually feel quite emotional watching this, i really do. watching that scene, as they came up here, and watching this huge crowd, i thought it was just wonderful, wonderful. i think they've just shown everyone today what the future of the monarchy will look like. coming up, the perfect way to sum up the day, the royal couple's double kiss. [ cellphone vibrates ] hey baby, what's going on? [ ella ] happy anniversary! are we still on for tonight? yeah, of course. of course. [ laughs ] you remembered to make a reservation, right? yeah, i remembered that.

>> it was a great big juicy smacker. >> no, it wasn't! >> good on you, will. that was much, much better than andrew and fergie. and i would say it was longer and more passionate than charles and diana's. that was a great kiss. those two love each other. i can't believe he did that. that boy does his own thing. he would have been told one kiss and that's enough and he's gone back for more. >> it was cute. he was talking to her and egged her on. >> if i'm the editor of a major
newspaper, my headline would be "get a room." those two can't take their eyes off each other. just a wonderful moment, wasn't it? with the raf doing the fly-by. reminding us that william is a member of the armed forces, he flies helicopters. harry has been to war in afghanistan. these boys are proper heroes. that single moment there will be what flashes around the world. and it just shows william is his own guy. the palace would have said do this, do that and everything will be done just in the flash of a moment, he heard the crowd and exactly as diana would have done, towards the end of her life when she was just her own woman, he did what came
naturally. and i loved that. a beautiful moment to end an absolutely spectacular day. it all went off without a hitch. even the weather stayed good and made me very proud to be british. thank you for watching. we have some blockbuster shows coming up on piers morgan tonight. next week, rob lowe, jessie james and more next week. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
